These vibrant and refreshing boozy pineapple popsicles are simple & easy, yet unbelievably satisfying treats for hot summer days!
Why you’ll love this recipe:
One of the best ways to combat summer heat is enjoy countless amount of popsicles, besides jumping into a cold pool, of course!
And no, not those colorful frozen sugar water from the stores!!!
We’re talking homemade popsicles made with real fruits!!
Oh my goodness, you’ll love these refreshing and sweet popsicles with a hint of sweet agave from tequila.
- Pineapple – You can use fresh, frozen or canned pineapple for this recipe.
- Sugar – I like to sweeten these popsicles with a little bit of simple syrup, because frozen treats tend to be dull on flavor.
- Tequila – I chose silver tequila for this recipe, because it has simple flavors that don’t overpower pineapple. It actually complements pineapple beautifully!
How to make this frozen treat:
- Make simple syrup: bring 1/3 cup of water in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Add sugar and stir until sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and cool completely.
- Blend: combine prepared simple syrup, pineapple chunks and tequila in a blender. Blend until nice and smooth.
- Mold: Divide the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze until completely frozen, 4-6 hours. (Depending on type of popsicle mold you have, you might need to insert popsicle stick after 1 hour.)
MY FAVORITE POPSICLE MOLDS!
I’ve had these popsicle molds for 7+ years and we love it!!
These popsicles need to be made ahead as they require 4-6 hours, preferably overnight, to freeze. The freezing time depends on your freezer type and the size of your popsicles.
These boozy popsicles can be frozen for up to 3 months at a constant temperature. But I can assure you they won’t last that long!
